  1. Breastfeeding Beyond Infancy
    <p>My 22 month old DD is a champion nurser and we have (thankfully!) had a very easy time of it.  However, in the past week, my right nipple has been really hurting.  The best way to describe the pain is that it feels like she constantly biting me (she will switch over to the left and I don't...
  2. Breastfeeding
    I was diagnosed on Monday with mastitis and am just now starting to turn the corner and feeling better. In the meantime, my supply has tanked. I am getting about a third of what I used to when I pump and DS has reduced his wet dipes so we are now supplementing with my freezer stash after he...

  4. Breastfeeding
    <p>With DS, I used the Nuk nipple ointment stick. I liked it because it wasn't greasy and I could just apply it straight onto my nipples instead of having to put it on my fingers.

  6. Breastfeeding
    <p>  DD is almost 2.5 and hasn't nursed since I was about 16 weeks pregnant with DS (her idea, not mine). A few times in the last couple of months she has asked to nurse. Then she'll pop on for 0.8 seconds and say she's done. Ok, cool, I figure she just wants to be offered the same as my...

    Does anyone else have dry, red spots on their breasts? At first, I thought they were blocked duct hot spots but they are just dry. I do have kinda sore nipples but that might be that I'm nursing an acrobat now who likes to do flips and pulls more on my nipples. Should I be concerned?
